Martha Argerich (Piano)

Martha Argerich – Live from Amsterdam!

Especially live recordings of the incomparable Martha Argerich are fascinating documents of the incomparable musical sensitivity and electrifying virtuosity of this charismatic pianist, who has been at the top of the world for decades. For this reason, EMI Classics has been deliberately presenting more live recordings from the “Martha Argerich Project” of the Swiss Lugano Festival in addition to studio recordings since 2002. The legendary early live documents of the artist from the Amsterdam Concertgebouw from 1978, 1979 and 1992 (previously available on individual CDs) are now presented by EMI Classics for the first time collected in a 3CD box set: Star moments with piano concertos by Mozart and Beethoven as well as solo works by Bach, Scarlatti, Chopin, Schumann, Ravel, Prokofieff and Bartók.

About Martha Argerich

“The difficulty in writing about the piano playing of Martha Argerich is that it is now, and always has been, so relentlessly good.” Gramophone

“She is still generally regarded as the greatest pianist alive today.” The Guardian

“The ever-renewed surprise of the telluric vitality of Martha Argerich’s playing. This insolence of ease, this taste for dynamic impact from which orchestral sprays seem to emerge.” Le Monde

About Live from the Concertgebouw

“Here, her relish and musical delight are almost palpable. The recordings capture an extraordinary sense of occasion providing living proof, if proof were needed, that Martha Argerich’s pianism and musicianship are unique in the annals of recreative genius.” Gramophone

“A salutary reminder of just what Argerich was capable of in her then-chosen guise as keyboard giant.”

“…A savage, devastating, unstoppable energy that explodes from this astonishing performance. Argerich makes this vibrant, restless music her own, and that probably explains why this spectacular set of miniatures is not part of every pianist’s repertoire: how could anyone possibly compete with such high-voltage pianism?”

“Argerich’s solo recital reminds us what an urgent and vital piano is.” Libération

“One can hear that Argerich is no woman of musical compromise. These recordings testify to her volcanic temper and intuitive playing – don’t miss them!” Cosmopolis
